Skip to comments.Report: 225,000 Californians Flee State Per Year (Pharaoh...let my people go!!!)
Posted on 09/29/2012 5:36:48 AM PDT by Kolath
Due to high taxes, burdensome regulations, lack of public sector reforms, and a lackluster job climate, more people have left California than come to the state since 2005, according to a comprehensive study by the Manhattan Institute released on Tuesday, suggesting California is no longer perceived by most Americans as the land where dreams come true.
In the report, titled The Great California Exodus: A Closer Look," Tom Gray and Robert Scardamalia found Californians have fled to states like Texas, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, South Carolina, and Georgia because those states have a better economic climate with less taxes and regulation.

And they bring their liberalism with them!
Unfortunately, true. They leave their blue states because of high taxes, crime, corruption, anti-business climate, unemployment, etc., and then, once in their adopted state, they proceed to vote for politicians who promote those very same conditions.
That’s what happens. They destroy other states. Just like the yanks have done to NC
ORIGINALLY, all of the blues from other states converged on those of us in California who were born in here—and are conservative.
It’s the fruits and nuts from other states that turned us INTO a “blue state.”
California is going Detroit, and the decline will pick up speed exponentially, as more people leave.
It’s past the tipping point.
Dear Californians: Our states stink. Do not come here.
Come on down to the Missouri Ozarks. Low taxes, plenty of turkey, deer, fish. You can shoot your gun. Did I mention low taxes ?
There, they'll be taught Economics 101 (like the law of supply and demand and diminishing returns), the US Constitution (simply broken down into parts and read in plain English, without a Marxist professor to "interpret" it for them) and US History by eager teachers who actually love America. Civics would also be a good subject.
Once they show some knowledge about this country and how it works they can graduate and move on to their final destinations.
Hell, maybe we can even send some back as double agents. I'd even contribute to their salaries!
Something really smells in that state......
the census hasn’t caught up to he full effect (only once per ten years).
They won’t be coming to Maryland ,,,, jumping from the fire to the frying pan doesn’t make sense . Marylanders are also in exodus .
Oh, and I forgot to add (but please don’t share this publicly) that for the more stupid and hardcore Leftists...
We’re going to need some kind of Clockwork Orange type adjustment procedures. I’m thinking the “student” strapped to a gurney with something to keep their eyes open, shown pictures of Oprah Winfrey, the gals from the View, Kim Kardashian, Bill Clinton, etc, while they’re given jolts from a taser. Do this until any mention of these “celebrities” cause involuntary trembling.
Only then will they be safe to be released into the general public.
the census hasnt caught up to he full effect (only once per ten years).
A bunch of Democrat weasels got hired by the Democrat controlled Statehouse to fudge the numbers "Big Time"
My guess would is they used the a drive by counting method that they've perfected.....
A pair of them were perched across the street from my old house in Ohio.....
Blue state immigrants to red states should be banned from voting at state and local level until they have lived in the state for 10 years, and only then if they have demonstrated, not merely talked up, conservatism in their personal behavior.
Is Govenor Moonbeam going to make the Manhattan Institute apologize for dissing California in their report?
That’s what happened here in SC and we ended up with Lindsay as a senator as a result. We went from a red state to lavender.
